Prerequisites 

PHYS 161
ENME 272

Description 

In order to make the best decisions in product design and development, it is important to understand the capabilities and limitations of different fabrication techniques. Students will learn to identify machine parts and functions, define machine shop terminology, calculate shop formulas and theories, execute machine operations, and apply proper measuring tools.

Goals 

The student upon completion of this course will be able to:
  1. Operate machine tools both manual and computer controlled safely
  2. Identify the effect of tolerances in manufacturing
  3. Make design decisions that can reduce the fabrication time and cost
